Daughter of Immigrants
ISBN: 1592868320 PublishAmerica. 2003 Itâ€™s 1921 and ten-year-old Tula Palestes, daughter of Greek immigrants, lives in the slum area of Chicago and dreams of becoming a teacher. Her father dies suddenly and Tula is thrust into marriage to an older man when she is fourteen years old. Her mission is to save the family. Her dream? Lost forever? Tulaâ€™s godfather, Ondoni, who rises in the ranks of Chicagoâ€™s crime circle to a position of authority, encourages Tula to strive for her goalâ€”to teach. But Ondoni is the family outcast, and Tulaâ€™s mother forbids her to associate with him. Trapped between her familyâ€™s needs and the shadow of Ondoniâ€™s sordid life, Tula learns an astonishing number of truths about little Greek girls who are forced to grow up too soon, marry, and bear children. Daughter of Immigrants is about a young Greek girlâ€™s conscience, and how it cuts through and reveals the naked truths.
